Grandmaís Goat

Nani Boodhi Ma was getting on in years. She could not see very well anymore. Yet, every morning she would take her goat, Billy, and wander into the forests. While Billy foraged for fodder, Nani Boodhi Ma gathered up firewood. She would burn the wood and cook lentil soup and some bread for herself. The fire also helped warm up her old, tired and achy bones during the cold nights.
When she had gathered up enough firewood, Nani Boodhi Ma would always have to hunt around and search for Billy who always wandered far away. When she was younger, Nani Boodhi Ma loved this exercise. Now she hated it. It was always a chore for her to figure out where Billy goat was. Often she would mistakenly go and grab other animals like deer and foxes in her attempts to snag Billy. She wondered what would happen if she were to unwittingly come upon a dangerous wild animal during her daily quests. She knew she had to do something to make sure she could find Billy without any problems.
One morning, after a lot of thinking, Nani devised a plan. Although she couldnít see very well, she could still hear everything very clearly.


So the old lady went out looking for billy goat again one day, but this time she had put a bell on the goat so she could hear the clanking of the bell on the goat. While she was searching, she heard the bell, "success!" she yelled. Unfortunately for the old lady, a nearby bear heard her yell, and the bear started running toward her to eat her. Billy goat saw what was about to happen so he ran away and the old lady got eaten. The moral of the story is: Why change a good thing?
So Nani decided to tie a bell around the goat's neck, so that now she could always tell exactly where her Billy was. Sadly however, while she thought she was tying the bell around his neck, she had actually tied it around his hind legs. One day, the neighbour's cow strolled past Nani's house on its morning walk and the inevitable happened. Pretty soon, the cow was trying to explain to the woman that goats can't moo and Nani kept insisting that no animal other than her Billy could be fool enough to go around wearing an anklet. Things were getting fairly heated at this point and finally, all the animals in the nearby forests had had enough. They each took turns guarding Billy and making sure he reached home safely every day, with the result that Nani and her goat lived happily ever after.
Billy had a very loud baaaaa.So Nani could always hear him!

She tied a ringing bell to the goat's neck. Though she could not see her goat, still she could hear the sound of the bell and find out the whereabout of the goat.
Nani decides that she would find two old bells from the market and tie them around Billy's neck. Then she would tie Billy to a tree stump where he could eat but not wander far away. This would help her find Billy and catch him easily because she would be able to hear the clang of bells as he moved around the tree stump looking for food...
Poor nani as she was crossing the road while going to the market (to buy her goat a shiny bell to tie around its neck)she met with an accident as she couldn't see very well and the poor goat was left with no one to look after.
Nani got a bell tied around billy''s neck so she could hear the bell and know where billy was.
